The latest trends in ECG monitoring

As medical technology advances, it’s important for hospitals and medical facilities to stay up to date, especially when it comes to ECG systems. Newer ECG systems offer better integration, including interoperability with other software, PCs and smart phones. Here are some of the most recent advancements:

Keep your patients heart healthy with routine ECG testing

An electrocardiogram (ECG) is an essential test for detecting heart problems in patients. Routine ECGs, which record the heart’s rhythm and activity, can find causes for chest pain and symptoms of heart disease. It detects abnormalities and clogging and can even be used to check how well medicine or medical devices like pacemakers are working for patients.

The Bionet Cardio7 Interpretive ECG Machine is a monitoring system with both interpretation and reporting functionality. This high-quality equipment, which meets the newest FFA standards for ECG report submissions, comes with pediatric diagnosis and memory capacity for up to 120 patients. It also prints out the ECGs in multiple formats.

This easy-to-use ECG machine earns in a reimbursement of $16.84 and each test after initial purchase only costs your medical facility 89 cents. The test takes a mere five minutes to complete, helping both your staff and patients get the accurate answers they need more quickly.

Long-Awaited EU Medical Device Legislation

It has been a long time coming, but the European Union has finally reformed the current medical device legislation. The whole ordeal started back in 2012 with two proposed regulations, one for medical devices and one for in vitro diagnostics (IVDs). These new regulations were aimed at producing better quality and safety for patients. While scientific and technological advances has skyrocketed in previous years, medical device and IVD legislation has still lagged behind. The wait to bridge that gap is finally coming to an end after a long and difficult legislative process.

Manufacturers will now be scrutinized with stricter post-market surveillance requirements. The risks of any device must be offset by acceptable likelihood of benefits. Companies will be required to submit periodic safety update reports annually and respond to public health threats swiftly and with their full force. This model has worked well for pharmaceutical companies, so it is expected to translate well to medical devices.

Although some in the industry may disagree with these provisions, it is a sign of progress to finally be moving once again. With safety checks and surveillance requirements, devices like new EKG machines and dopplers will be ready for patient use. Give your patients the best possible care by purchasing through Medical Device Depot, which stays up to date on all of the latest rules, regulations and legislation in the industry.

Is it better to lease or to buy medical devices?

As you prepare to furnish your office with all of the necessary equipment and latest medical devices, you will need to decide if you want to lease or purchase your equipment outright. These big-ticket items aren’t cheap, and many of them are needed to run a successful practice. From EKG machines to stress test systems, all of your basic tests will require the latest devices and equipment to ensure accuracy and efficiency in making diagnoses.

It is important to figure out which type of payment works best for your practice so your attention can go toward your patients instead of your practice’s bottom line. What works best for one office may not work at all for another. Look forward to your plans for the future as well as your finances and see which option is the best fit.

So what are some benefits of each option?

Purchase

  • Tax incentives – Some device makers may have tax incentives to help make purchasing a big-ticket item more affordable.
  • Lower cost in the long run – If it is an item that you will use for a long time, purchasing the device will prove to be more affordable in the long term.
  • Use equipment on your own terms – There are not any regulations or rules regarding how to use equipment when you own it.

Lease

  • Stay up to date – Technology is always changing. Leasing will allow you to upgrade when new technology comes out without requiring you to take a large financial hit.
  • Less maintenance – The company that owns the equipment will handle maintenance and repairs, taking the worry off your plate.
  • Lower up-front cost – You can choose a payment plan that fits your budget.
